Challenge:

Cafeterias are more than places to eat. These open multi-purpose spaces change from cafeterias to auditoriums to gymnasiums requiring different acoustical and durability needs, depending on use.

Solution:

Noise reduction is key and can be accomplished with Total Acoustics school ceilings to absorb sound and keep it from traveling to adjacent areas. Cafeterias and multipurpose areas are also great places to mix it up with design options. Acoustical metal and wood as well as clouds, canopies, ceiling baffles and blades vertical options can add personality to schools.

Challenge:

From graduations to student theatre performances, auditoriums are used for a variety of events that make sound control critical. Acoustical needs can range from sound reflection for controlled vibrancy to sound absorption for less reverberation. Durability and aesthetics are also key considerations.

Solution:

Play up drama with designs that set the stage, but can also provide the acoustical performance that preserves sound quality and durability to ensure long-lasting good looks. Add character through your choice of materials and forms. Acoustical metal and wood as well as clouds and canopies, ceiling baffles and blades vertical options are worthy of center stage.

 

Challenge:

School corridors hum with activity as they usher students from classroom to classroom and connect key areas of your project. In these busy spaces of early education and secondary schools, noise control and durability are key. In higher education, alluring wood or sleek metal options can add to the personality of the space.

Solution:

Help reduce unwanted noise coming from busy corridors with Total Acoustics school ceiling tiles that offer sound absorption and sound blocking performance and offer a durable surface, as do metal ceilings and wood ceilings.

Challenge:

Gymnasiums often serve as multipurpose spaces with a broad range of duties from hosting the visiting basketball team to setting the stage for special performances. Their hard, reflective surfaces can make the environment noisy and quality of acoustics very poor. Ceilings in these spaces need durability to withstand playtime mishaps and the acoustic control to facilitate school-wide presentations.

 

Solution:

These booming spaces need a mix of durability and high acoustical performance. Quiet the boom with impact-resistant school ceiling tiles that offer Total Acoustics performance. Baffles and blades vertical options can play a role as well as acoustical metal and wood, or clouds and canopies. All are castmates worthy of center stage.

Challenge:

On any given day, thousands of students are unable to understand one out of every four spoken words in classrooms due to inadequate acoustics; this is why the ANSI S12.60 Classroom Acoustics Standard was developed by the Acoustical Society of America. In addition to acoustical issues, poor lighting and glare in the classroom can cause eye strain and fatigue, hampering a student’s ability to concentrate.

Solution:

Consider school ceiling tiles with Total Acoustics performance and high light reflectance to create better and brighter spaces for students to learn, and teachers to teach. The ideal combination of sound absorption and sound blocking will help make the grade.

Challenge:

First impressions in schools are important. Many schools have signature spaces, like lobbies and entryways, that tell the world who they are, impacting the ability to recruit students and faculty, endowments, and community goodwill.

Solution:

Lobbies and entryways are perfect places to make a statement that reflects the personality of an educational institution – especially in higher education. Our selection of school ceiling tiles come in a variety of shapes and materials sure to make a great first impression, from standard to specialty.
